Chewy Chocolate Chip Oatmeal Cookies

This afternoon there were no snacks left in the cupboard so I made some chewy chocolate chip oatmeal cookies. A bunch of cookie monsters live here! Everyone of course needs a snack when my 7 year old gets home from school and Dad and I always have a cup of tea and biscuits when the kiddos go to bed. I had limited ingredients so I had to make it up as I went along. They turned out so yummy and so soft and chewy!

In stand mixer cream together:
3/4 cup shortening
1 cup packed brown sugar

Mix in 2 eggs ( 1 at a time)

In separate bowl mix together:

1 & 1/2 cups flour
3/4 tspn baking soda
1 tspn salt
1 tspn cinnamon

Mix in 2 cups quick cooking oats

Add dry ingredients to wet ingredients, mix well

Fold in 3/4 cup of chocolate chips

Scoop onto baking pan using a heaping tspn of cookie dough

Bake at 350 for about 14 minutes
